It has brought new cultures and traditions, and had even mixed both with the Native Americans, which ties into people being brought together and accepting others culture. Without immigration, the thirteen colonies may never have formed, meaning the United States of America may not be present today. Different types of sources of information like documentations and type of books like “plymouth plantation” and “Mother Tongue” explain my statement. My statement is, immigrants learn new cultures, create their own way of living or confort, adapt to different customs and were looked upon differently in appearance and their cultures. The most important cultures as pilgrims in Plymouth Plantation was their religious beliefs their desire to explore unknown lands, their rejection of European culture and values, their desire to convert other people to their way of life.
Different points will also be talked about between the two incoming immigrant states as they experience many obstacles coming and being in America. Scotch-Irish and Latin Americans, both faced needs for a better life by moving to the United States only because of the circumstances that had occurred in their homeland. Scots-Irish left Ulster, which was their homeland, for different purposes. Religious persecution and economic factors were reasons that pushed them away, which according to The Scots-Irish Journey to the New World, “…Between 1714 and 1719 Ulster suffered a succession of bad harvests and by 1718 the linen industry was also in recession” (“The Scots-Irish Journey…”). As the Scotch Irish suffered
Cultural barriers as americans we are more open to do different things but when being from different cultures it might be considered disrespectful. Immigrants face many diffuculties from when they come to the country, raise children and cultural
This is another reason Hispanics had challenges, because they had to adjust to very brand new and unfamiliar things in a very fast period. They did not have much time to settle down because they were so busy with everything. That probably made things 10x WORSE because they were not able to settle, familiarize themselves, and on top of that, they had to adjust to so many new things so fast. I also found out that countless immigrants continue to struggle to make a successful life for themselves in this country. This adds onto the fact that they are struggling everyday, just to make a living for themselves, when
Citizens from other countries other than Canada will need to show some form of legal papers to enter. (find.law)This law means that those who wish to enter the country will either have to show I guess for example Mexicans have to show green cards, passports, legal citizen papers to enter the state, all of those things very hard to get because they cost a lot and also have to put
Undocumented immigrants migrate only for a better social economic status that their country cannot provide. As humans we should be able to give these opportunities to immigrants because once you get to know them on a personal level you end up learning something new about their culture or that individual, it is fascinating. We are all different and carry different traditions and different opinions. Some people are more opened to undocumented immigrants in this country while others are completely shut on accepting them in this
Although the tone for differing people entering our borders today is negative, not all of American history has been this way. In the early years of America, there was not a definition of a true American, as many people were continuing to move across the borders searching for a new beginning and those born in the United States were usually the first or second generation. Benjamin Franklin fell in this group, as his father was born in England but moved to America in his early years. During this time period, many religious groups and racial groups gravitated apart due to clashing in beliefs and culture, but Benjamin Franklin had a different mindset from his peers. Whilst openly claiming to be deist despite his Puritan upbringing, Franklin understood the importance of differing views and opinions and how this benefited the budding country.
Relocating to a new country and starting a new life is always a daunting process for most of the immigrants. My focus for the WP3 is on the challenges the immigrants have to deal with when they arrived in the U.S I work with one of the interpreting companies that employ a diverse group of immigrants, so my plan is to interview some of my work colleagues. I want to know their personal stories of coming to the U.S. How tough was their immigration process? Did they experience any culture shock when they first arrived to the U.S and was it hard to adapt? Most of the immigrants have to pass the extreme vetting before they come to the U.S. Also, the cultural difference sometimes deters them from seeking jobs and receiving services.
Gabriella Roman It’s hard to believe that in America, a country founded by immigrants, new-comers are still struggling to integrate successfully into American society. My parents, like many other immigrants, were faced with a number of struggles upon arriving in America: a new language, new culture, and new endeavors, [on top of finding work]. Growing up in this environment, I became aware of how weak English skills can serve as a barrier to separate immigrants from American society. The immediate struggle immigrants face is to provide for their families- have to juggle integrating into american society (learning language, etc.) while having a steady income impact that poor language skills can have on an individual’s adapting to a new [community].
Although the author of the text is familiar with the American context, I believe all these arguments and strategies can be applied to different countries including Turkey. There are also different minority groups in Turkey like Kurds, Alevis etc. and they face serious problems in the education area similar to those in USA. Alongside the fact that Kurdish kids cannot get education on their own native language, they and the other minority groups become obligated to get education where there is a huge “Turkish identity” orientation like the Eurocentric orientation that is prevalent in USA. For example, Alevi children in Turkey have to attend the religion lessons that are mostly suitable with the beliefs of the majority and incompatible with their beliefs.
Migrating to America was not easy back then as it is now. With America being a country with abundant of possibility and opportunity , people began to pursue the “American Dream” but entering a country of freedom had its setbacks, to be able to enter back then you had to come prepared to pass a medical examination that started the moment you arrived, and you were asked hundreds of questions for your tensions of being here in the United States of America. From back then and the time being now the process of immigration has changed dramatically. the whole idea of migrating to America was to escape from something constricting their right weather it was from religion or an unfair government, but getting here took some guts. the author writes
